Hyggelik wrote on Aug 19, 2021, 15:54:It makes little sense to post that in General Discussion without link to the original news story. It might be useful to add it to the comments there.
The link for this article "Rambus Shares New Details on Upcoming HBM3 Specification." made my ESET pop up a warning. Please use at your own risk.
Kxmode wrote on Aug 13, 2021, 12:19:Come on Kxmode, you of all people (except RedEye9 perhaps ) should know better than to bury a bug report inside a news post discussion. That's what General Discussion is for.
P.S. Stephen, it looks like articles that begin with quotes result in truncated titles (e.g., "Re:").
Pike wrote on Aug 10, 2021, 04:43:Ah, that was surprising indeed. This differed between the static frontpage that users see and a dynamic one I normally use, as the scheme-host part wasn't trimmed off those archive links in some cases. Fixed now, thanks for the report.
This is the source I get, both links are http (I also checked in Edge to confirm it's not due to any Firefox addons):
<div class="archive-bar gutter-top">
<strong class="archive-link pull-left"><a href="http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/blammo.pl?mode=archive&display=20210806" target="_self">Previous 2 days</a> </strong>
<strong class="archive-link"><a href="http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/blammo.pl?mode=archive" target="_self">News Archive</a></strong>
<strong class="archive-link pull-right"> </strong>
So no idea what is going on!
Pike wrote on Aug 10, 2021, 01:57:There must be another reason because those links (and all local links) do not use the 'scheme://host/' part of the URL, so they cannot deviate from the site default, which is https://www.bluesnews.com/. You can see this in the source (ctrl-U).
Really trivial issue here but I have Firefox's https-only mode enabled and get a warning whenever I click "Previous 2 days" or "News Archive" at the bottom of the front page (because these links still use http not https).
use open ":std", ":encoding(UTF-8)";
binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)';(and similarly for STDIN).

Mr. Tact wrote on Apr 25, 2021, 12:04:Both. The tag explicitly is for secret "text", and doesn't actively hide any text but merely renders it in the background color. The smilies are images and therefore cannot be hidden the same way, but also don't really fall under the meaning of text.
lies still show through secret tags though....
Which may or may not be intentional
Kxmode wrote on Apr 2, 2021, 14:37:Could but won't. It's in the menu, and Blue and I feel it doesn't belong in the footer. Besides, if it were there, then by the same logic the credits & FAQ could go there as well, and that would be too much.
Frans, could you add the stats link to the footer?
Acleacius wrote on Apr 2, 2021, 13:19:Thanks, no secret: the graph is done by simply feeding Chart.js with settings and data. The month picker took the most time, starting from an existing jQueryUI plugin and fixing/massaging it into shape. We can rebuild it, we have the source code, and it doesn't even cost 6 dollars.
That's some sleek and sexy coding Frans, what's your secret!
Bent wrote on Mar 18, 2021, 14:35:Send News (in the masthead) or Submit News (in the left menu) use a mailto link which opens a message window with a mail program (e.g. Thunderbird) where that address is already filled in.
Aha, the Contact Blue link gives an email address but the Submit News doesn't.

Still hoping one day, to be able to login and return to the intended page to post.-
If there is no current post in an article you want to post in. You login, then get stuck, have to return to the Bluesnews.com, and then back to the article page.
Acleacius wrote on Mar 8, 2021, 13:53:Done, for both news and forums. Thanks, this was one of those little why-didn't-I-think-of-that-ten-years-ago tweaks.
Doing a Search, it would be nice to have a Page Count. -
I was trying to see if you already had posted the story of Kojima's exit after finding a decent story but had no idea how many pages I was going to be searching through.
RedEye9 wrote on Mar 8, 2021, 14:25:That's because the browser already went through one redirect inside the scripts, so the Referer path of the original request is no longer available. Changing that would require something like passing that path in a &url= parameter throughout the login process, which looks fugly and is cumbersome in the code.
"Return To Previous Page" does not appear after logging in on a news post that has zero comments.
